My son is 3, so we don't do a lot of TV-watching together. Sometimes I'll cuddle with him while he watches, but that's about it. We have a separate DTivo in the den (just off the kitchen, and in full view from nearly everywhere in the house) that is for overflow conflicts from our main TV, as well as his Tivo'd programs. He has *no* idea of what live TV is. Why would you subject him to that?

His SPs are the following:

Little Einsteins (his favorite, and mine too)
Backyardigans (our second favorite)
Higglytown Heroes
Dora (his favorite when he was 2)
Go Diego, Go
Blue's Clues
Zoboomafoo
Miss Spider's Sunny Patch

He kind of goes in spurts with what he watches, and I'd say 90% of the time he wants to watch Little Einsteins right now. (It was like that with Dora last year). Needless to say, we keep 10 episodes of each at pretty much all times. He can't read yet, but he's remember all the episode names, and he asks for them by name. (i.e. I wanna watch Little Einsteins "Hungarian Hiccups" daddy!")

We read books together.

I am really disturbed to hear about people watching violent programming (numbers! Jeez!) with pre-teens.

I have to say that I almost always watch TV with my 3 1/2 year old. I only rarely allow he to watch without myself being in the same room.

Also, with few exceptions, she may only watch after dinner and before bedtime -- usually that's 2 1/2 hour shows (less commercials).

I was mainly referring to the fact that I watch a ton more TV than my little boy does, seeing as how goes to bed b/t 7-8 and I stay up until 12:30-1. While I don't usually sit there and actively watch TV with him, I control what he watches (Tivo is beautiful that way) and I'm generally in the same room ("his" TV and Tivo are in the den, which is off the kitchen, and is pretty much the central area of our house), just doing something else.

But mostly we've been watching classic movies, Captain Blood has sparked a few months of imaginative pirate play, as has Robin Hood, jason & the argonauts ect. ect. Ghostbusters, back to the future, Jurassic park have all been great hits too.

With my 9 year-old and 7 year-old, I watch the following that seem to appeal to all of us...

Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide (smartest 'kid' show on TV)
Survivor (gives me a chance to school them in game theory and logic without their realizing it)
Endurance (kid's lite version of Survivor)
The Simpsons
Mythbusters
Good Eats (the 7 year-old loves to cook)
Classic looney tunes
Fosters's Home...
TAR - at least till this current 'family' season, which even the kids thought sucked raw goose eggs
Classic horror movies
Certain X-Files (some of the comedic MOWs, like 'Bad Blood')
Viva La Bam - hey, I grew up with these guys in my backyard, so at least I can show them where I lived

They also love Penn & Teller, and we watch their infrequent specials and the episodes of Bullsh*t I feel comfotable with them watching (I always watch it first).

Agreed - Neutron is damn funny. Forgot that one on my list.

My 10 YO daughter watches Stargate SG1 and Atlantis with me. Used to watch Enterprise, she's the reason I watched the entire last 2 seasons.

My five year old daughter watches the usual PBS Kids shows, but she really likes to watch Dancing with the Stars.

Most of the shows I watch get immediately turned off if she enters the room, but I was watching the last 10 minutes of Scrubs when she came in the room and it seemed OK so I let her watch it. Ever since she always begs to watch it.
